The Expected and Unexpected at AZILG
Another AZILG conference has successfully ended and left its audience with more knowledge and connections than when it began. As one of our favorite conferences to attend, the AZILG committee truly poured their heart and souls into the planning, preparation, and careful consideration of each session. Attendees gained great insight in the proposed Equal Pay Report, compensation, Section 503 and VEVRAA effects, and transgender etiquette. It was quite an eclectic group of topics that elicited a whole gamete of discussions. For example, as the topic of transgender is trending and getting national spotlight, one of the session's discussed the proper terminology and etiquette to support transgender colleagues in the workplace. Many of the terms had not been identified before to the audience, so it turned out to be quite educational and filled with inquisitive hand raises for our speakers.Read More
Sharing in the Support for our Veterans
SourceCast was fortunate enough to attend our local Alexandria Workforce Center's hiring event on Wednesday! With Veterans Day around the corner, we were reminded of the support and dedication we wish to share for all those who have so courageously served this country. These individuals have given so much to us, so what an honor it was to shake some of the hands of this country's true heroes. Not only did we meet some of our local heroes, but we were able to witness the wonderful work of our local veteran employment center representatives. These recruiters work so diligently and passionately to help our veterans find employment day in and day out. They are dedicated in giving back by feverishly aligning opportunities with pre-qualified candidates. The fact that our veterans are given such white-glove service, whether it's pre-qualifying, military skill translating, or interview training, is truly an inspiring process to witness. We were so lucky to visit with the center in order to really stay abreast to the needs of our local career centers and to our veteran job seekers. The best kind of knowledge is knowledge that comes from our experiences, and SourceCast truly gained some great knowledge through our hands-on experience. What a wonderful way to kick-start our Veterans Day commemorating and celebrations.Read More
The Inside Scoop at USBLN's 18th Annual Conference

Compliance Needs to Be a Top Priority
Now that VEVRAA and Section 503 regulations are in place and here to stay, the next task is to prepare for the inevitable audit. With more scheduling letters crashing your Monday morning routine, the speakers at the ILG National Conference are reverently pushing the need to be prepared when OFCCP comes knocking. It is no longer a thing of the future to prepare for impending audits, prepare precise AAPs, and recruit minority or diversity candidates. No, there’s no time to waste in fulfilling requirements, because reviews and audits are now the thing of the present. Each session captivates the audience and ends with a detailed Q&A, which emphasizes the fact that compliance officers and HR generalists alike all have something in common: the desire for knowledge. This ILG National Conference is undoubtedly bringing peers together in the name of compliance and recruitment. Each morning, chatter creeps through the walls and enters the halls as attendees network and share tips with their peers. Sessions consistently produce the sigh of relief when a speaker addresses an audience member’s question, which causes their neighbor to exude thanks for their same silent question. What a sight to see the power of knowledge motivate so many individuals in a single room.Read More
